Birthday Card Using CTMH Best Friends Furever

Hello Friends!  I hope everyone is doing well or at least staying safe.  It is hot here in Southern CA and supposed to get hotter.  

I created this card yesterday; but I am not happy with it.  Have you ever had an image in your mind that turns out completely different than you planned?  That is what happened to me yesterday.  I needed to make a birthday card for a cat lover and thought I had it all figured out; but the end results were not what I planned.  I just hope the person likes the card, even if I don't.  LOL!  

I created it by following a color challenge from my CTMH upline.  On top of that, I rarely do color challenges and I realized, after I was finished, that it probably isn't correct; because there are a couple extra colors on the DP.   I was so focused on using the colors in the bingo that I failed to pay attention to that small detail.  LOL!

I love this paper; but I get frustrated because I hate to cover it up.  LOL!  I am always slow in using my papers that I buy; so I apologize that this is already retired.  

For Heart 2 Heart Challenge - My favorite crafting tool is my Electric Gemini Jr. and the mini as well.  I love using thin cuts/dies.
